Anything can always break. That is why 2 of everything is always a good idea. And critical for deco scuba.
If your hose on your O2 bottle had ruptured 1 min into your deco, you would have beed doing your deco off your backgas and it would take a long time, or you would be buddy breathing with your buddy's O2 bottle. That is why and EAN50 bottle combined with an O2 bottle is a good idea. Faster recovery plan. And no buddy breathing.
Lots of lessons in your recent experience for those diving hogarian who think one of anything is ok, trying to be streamlined.
